Well Roger I've flown it a fair bit, but I haven't actually used it near the railway yet. I keep meaning to chat up a GBRf driver to let me record his approach to Middleton Towers (I wouldn't fly near a loco without clearing it with the driver first).

If I do the South Lynn station/Lynn Harbour Jn, I'll have to be very careful of the overheads, but it should be OK if I'm careful.

Cheers, BW.

The Lynn & Fakenham Railway - Part 1. ...

This post results from reading Issue No. 30 of the "Railway Archive" Journal. It contains an article about the locomotives originally purchased for the Cornwall Minerals Railway. That company dramatically over-ordered motive power and when it lease was taken over by the GWR, 50% of its original order were returned to the manufacturer Sharp, Stewart of Manchester.

Eight if these locomotives found their way to the Lynn & Fakenham Railway and eventually onto the books of the Midland & Great Northern Joint Railway.

This first post about the Lynn & Fakenham Railway focusses on these locomotives. ...
